Collectibles Purpose?
« on: July 22, 2010, 11:55:27 AM »
I loved AI War, and so just bought Tidalis last night. I only got through the tutorial and a couple rounds of the campaign, but so far it seems like a cool game! The gameplay is truly interesting, and the whole game is permeated by a level of polish.

While I'm at work and unable to play, I was wondering - what do the collectibles do (tires, etc.)? Do I spend them later somehow, or can I later use them to craft things, or are they just completely pointless except for the goofy fun factor?

Well, they provide the story characters several opportunities to make fun of you :)

As you progress through the story, their "purpose" starts to make more sense.  But, I'll go ahead and say... well, there's not much that I can't say that wouldn't be a spoiler.  ;)

I'll make another topic with spoiler in the title in case people want to know.

I thought the piling purple aliens were just something to giggle about.
I'd take a sea worm any time over a hundred emotionless spinning carriers.
